Cooking with steam is one of the huge benefits of the Tovala. Steam rocks! Here are some things to know about having steam cooking capabilities in your Steam Oven...
What is coming out of the back of my Tovala?
- That’s steam! It’s what keeps your chicken juicy, your broccoli cooked through, and your salmon perfect.
- Give your Tovala 2 inches of clearance between the steam and cabinets. If you notice condensation on your cabinets, wipe it off.
Is it normal for water to be dripping into the chamber while cooking?
- Yes. That’s just water that hasn’t turned into steam yet. Totally normal!
There's water in the bottom of my Tovala...
- That's condensation in the oven and is totally normal.
- You can wipe it up or it should evaporate
- This gives the oven steam. Make sure it's at least 1/3 full when cooking.
Water in the drip tray
- This is the tray that slides under the front of the Tovala. It collects water that condenses from steam.
- Check it and empty it periodically.
Pro Tip: When you're only cooking with steam...
- When you’re using only the Steam cooking method to cook something, use a perforated container like a cooling rack or colander so that water doesn’t pool on the bottom of the container.
